Description / Chinese Type-56 Chest Bandolier
Our Chinese Type-56 chest bandoliers are completely original Chinese military surplus items. Upon receiving the bandoliers, you will notice that they are, despite being used, in great cosmetic and working condition. Consider adding this wonderful piece to your collection today as a complement to your Type-56 or AK-47.
The Chinese Type-56 chest bandolier is constructed from a tough, olive drab canvas material that has held up extremely well throughout the years. The bandolier features a total of seven pouches. Three of those pouches are large and designed to carry 30-round magazines for the Type-56 or AK-47. That means you can carry up to 90 rounds of 7.62x39mm ammunition – all without the use of your hands! The remaining four pouches are much smaller and are perfect for carrying smaller accessories, such as oil bottles and cleaning supplies. Each pouch has a closure flap that serves to protect the contents of the pouch and is secured via small wooden toggles. The adjustable shoulder straps give this bandolier a "one size fits most" sizing.
The Chinese Type-56 chest bandolier is an excellent choice for:
- Range trips
- Much more…

Shoulder straps are attached to D rings via a simple hitch knot, and are made of heavy canvas. The waste strap is thinner material, and simply ties behind the back.
The mag pouches are properly sized for standard 30 round steel military magazines, and the utility pouches on the sides are perfectly sized for a number of small items - one of them has interior organizing loops to hold the oiler bottle and but stock cleaning kit (excellent for my under folder).
The wood toggles on all the pockets are strange at first, but they fold the flaps closed very securely - and with a few attempts, you can learn to use them quickly enough. After a few attempts, I was able to use them with shooting gloves on.
Value and durability are very high for this item. Utility is very good. I will likely buy a few more in the future.
Great quality for the low price. I don't think this thing will break any time soon, so I'll be comfortable using it often.
